Students are returning so campus and downtown Athens will soon be full to bursting. One great thing students, faculty and staff can do to relieve congestion in the area is to leave your car at home. Flagpole provides a great primer on ways you can do just that: Campus Transit buses are free for anyone to use, and they stop at every stop on the route. You  can hop on and hop off at any stop. There’s more space out than in, so just remember to…
